Data plan for waze and google maps only
« on: September 05, 2016, 07:17:59 PM »
Hi - I would like to use a cheap android phone as a gps - I only need data for waze or google maps and occasionally to look at an email. Obviously I do not need 4g and throttled data should be fine. Was are the best options? Are there any cheap options with unlimited 3g (I assume that is enough)?

TY

Project fi is too expensive.  Either freedom pop free or t-mobile $10 line.

Does freedom pop free have enough data? The best would be if they give unlimited slow speed after you use up your data allotment

You realize that Project Fi would be $20 for unlimited minutes and texts?
Unless you stick to Verizon for quality/coverage

Does mad surfing give unlimited data? it seems like only 6gb but on SD they claim you will not get overages unless you tether.
